Vol. 2 No. 83 The Value of a Bronze Medal

In the previous posting the article about Joey Greene selling his medals to a pawn shop in Las Vegas got some of us wondering about what they are worth.

Ready to put it on your credit card?



Check out this clip from the TV show Pawn Stars which has or had them for sale.
